Do not call registry


Recommended Posts

When traveling on long trips, I will answer the phone occasionally knowing it’s probably a scam call. Press this, press that and someone finally answers. I can be the most foul mouthed person anywhere. Some are soo shocked “Wha wha what”. They forget to hang up and take the verbal abuse. 


Edit:

I save all unanswered calls with no voicemail and the few I do answer all get named “xBlock”. Interesting, I don’t recall ever getting one of those saved numbers calling back again. I actually don’t block the numbers. 
 

I've currently saved 95 xBlock callers.

I tell them I want warranty coverage for my 1929 Chevrolet or my 2002 Peterbilt. They usually say they can’t cover them and hang up when I say I don’t have a newer vehicle.  Sometimes it’s fun to string them along. I had one call me an a-hole when I asked for his Momma’s number so I could get a date.

I remember getting a call 2 years ago about the wifes truck. I needed to get the extended warranty because mine was about to expire....... her truck was less than a week old.

I get the robo calls coming from local numbers. I don't answer them. They go to the answering machine. If they are legit, they will leave a message.

I once got a robo call from myself....... yep, the number on caller id was the same number they were calling. I should have answered so I could talk to myself and hear what I was trying to sell myself. If I had hung up, would I have been hanging up on myself?

Maybe it was your future self telling you the winning lottery numbers...??
